In today’s rapidly evolving digital sphere, access to reliable high-speed internet has become not just a convenience, but a necessity. Across education, healthcare, business, and entertainment, digital connectivity is absolutely fundamental. Yet, as seen in developing countries like the Philippines, a stark digital divide persists, particularly in rural and marginalized communities. The urgent call for affordable, high-speed mobile data solutions has never been clearer.

Amidst these challenges, the advent of 5G technology offers a promising solution. With its unparalleled speed, reliability, and capacity, 5G holds the potential to transform internet connectivity, opening avenues for innovation and progress. Opportunities abound, from smart city initiatives to remote healthcare and education. Yet, realizing widespread adoption hinges on addressing affordability and accessibility.

Pioneering true High-Speed 5G connectivity

Among the companies at the forefront of these efforts is DITO Telecommunity, a relatively new player in the Philippine telecommunications market demonstrating a robust commitment to expanding access to digital services and bridging the digital divide. Leveraging the power of its 5G Standalone (SA) network, DITO sets itself apart from competitors by offering a truly independent and cutting-edge infrastructure, ensuring the full benefits of 5G technology.

DITO’s 5G SA network boasts speeds 20 times faster than 4G/LTE, offering 100 times greater capacity and efficiency. This advantage stems from DITO’s next-generation infrastructure built specifically for 5G, unlike competitors who rely on existing 4G networks (NSA 5G). DITO’s “real 5G” with ultra-low latency opens doors for a wider range of applications on new devices, known as 5G SA smartphones or dual-mode 5G smartphones. More devices compatible with these networks are expected to become widely available as 5G becomes the standard for mobile connectivity.

DITO’s coverage is now available across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The company continually develops and deploys its 5G SA infrastructure to deliver blazing-fast speeds and seamless connectivity, revolutionizing the mobile experience for millions of Filipinos and closing the digital divide.

Range of products for every need

But accessibility is only part of the equation; affordability is equally crucial, especially in a country with a significant low-income population. Recognizing this, DITO has introduced a range of mobile postpaid and prepaid products tailored to suit different needs and budgets.

For those who prefer postpaid plans, DITO offers flexible and value-packed options with generous data allowances, unlimited calls, and texts. Their newest offerings include the DITO Mobile Postpaid FLEXPlan 388 and UNLIMITED 5G data for SIM-Only plans. FLEXPlan 388 boasts a total of 50GB data (25GB regular + 25GB 5G), unlimited calls and texts to all networks, a 12-month Prime Video subscription, and other perks – all starting at only PHP 288 per month for the first three months.

DITO also revamped its SIM-Only Plans, introducing UNLIMITED 5G data options for as low as Php 888, which includes 40GB of 4G data per month. All SIM-Only plans come with unlimited calls and texts to all networks and have no lock-in period. These plans prioritize affordability without sacrificing service quality, ensuring users can stay connected at budget-friendly prices.

On the other hand, DITO offers a variety of prepaid products catering to different usage patterns, perfect for those who prefer the freedom of prepaid services. From affordable data promos to unlimited call and text offers, DITO’s prepaid options provide the flexibility to customize mobile experiences according to needs and budget. Interested customers can embark on their DITO journey with the DITO SIM Starter Pack for only Php 39, packed with up to 25GB of data. DITO also offers budget-friendly prepaid subscriptions like DITO Level-Up 99. At just Php 99, this plan provides 7GB of data usable on any network, unlimited texts to all networks, 300 minutes of calls to other networks, unlimited calls to fellow DITO subscribers, and a bonus Prime Video subscription, all valid for 30 days.

In addition to affordability, convenience plays a crucial role. With DITO’s user-friendly mobile app and intuitive self-service features, managing accounts and purchasing data packages is effortless. Whether you’re a tech-savvy city dweller or a first-time smartphone user in a rural area, DITO’s simple and accessible mobile solutions empower you to stay connected.
